    My guess:
    - Scout Hightail is repainted Lugnutz

    - Deluxe DEFENDOR (?) repainted Bendy Prime

    Hightail = ...Scrapmetal Repaint
    Megatron = uh... Demolisher Repaint? Or possibly the dx Unicron
    Defenor = Landmine Repaint or the Armada Demolisher Repaint
    Cryotek = Scourge! No wait! CD Red Alert Repaint!

    Speculation!

    While likley the "deluxe Megatron" listing is for Unicron, I'm holding hope that Hasbro might release Megabolt another time (mass release at long last!)

    Defendor (maybe Defensor?)...I'd hazard a new mold, or maybe the Landmine repaint

    My guesses:

    Defendor-- Landmine repaint

    Hightail-- Wreckloose repaint as an Autobot

    Megatron-- New mold, deluxe-sized version of Leader Class Megatron

    Let's see:

    Scout Hightail - I don't see any of the rumored scout repaints fitting this except Ransack, but we already know that Ransack GTS (how original :p  ) is the Ransack repaint... so I'm going to hazard a new mould as Breakdown, Armorhide, Scattorshot and Scrapmetal don't really fit with a name like Hightail. Now if it's a repaint of a Scout that wasn't rumored... well, I'd say that Lugnutz fits the bill pretty well.

    Deluxe Megatron - Just out of curiousity... what makes people think that it's the Deluxe Unicron toy when we've seen his listing before in Wal-Mart computers... at least I'm pretty sure we have. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that it's going to be an all new mould or similar to say... Bendy Prime and Armada Demolishor, one of the Deluxe Megatrons repainted like Hero or Megabolt. I'd like an all new mould myself.

    Deluxe Defendor - Possibly the Landmine repaint. Or more likely the CD Hot Shot repaint. I doubt this would be a new mould, but that would be pretty cool to get another one... doubt it though.

    Ultra Cryotek - Scourge repaint we've seen. Wonder if he's 'bot or 'con?

    Cryotek will be 'con, Laser Op, dont second guess that.

    For Hightail, definately a repaint of Wreckloose, probably with a faction switch. his mold fits the G1 Skullcruncher colors well, I wanted to see that...

    No idea on Deluxe Megatron and Defendor... but if I want to really hazard a big guess... what about the Beast Wars 10th Primal and Megs? We know they were designed for the Cybertron line as much as the Beast Wars line, a G1 or Cybertron Megatron color-job on Megatron, a new color scheme on Primal... just maybe.

    ...I wanted Apelinq though

    Yes. I'd kill for a G1 repaint of Megabolt.

    I bet Hightail will be a Backstop repaint.

    Doubtful. Very, very doubtful.

    Cryotek is the Scourge repaint we saw. The color scheme matches the name perfectly.

    My guesses...

    Ultra Cryotek - The repainted Scourge we've seen earlier.

    Hightail - Lugnutz repaint would seem to fit and it is a nice mold for a repaint. (It could just be Wreckloose tho, there really hasn't been enough Beast bots in this line for my taste.)

    DEFENDOR - Sounds to me like a repainted CD Hot Shot but it might work out as a Landmine.

    Megatron - I'll go out on a limb here and say that Megabolt would be so cool if it were repainted in this line. It does have a gimmick that could be reworked to use a key. And I'd love to see the mold done in Silver/White with Black. But... it'll most likely turn out to be a crap repaint of Override or or someother such thing.

    Who said CD Hot Shot would be redecoed? IMO, Defendor as a name doesn't make sense for any of the previously toys. Only for the Demolisher remold, but the packaging is already saying Demolisher.
